. it was interesting yesterday on martha's vineyard where the president is vacationing, the deputy secretary went farther than anyone had gone in saying that the events, the bloodshed which at that point was not even a guide, did call into question the interim government's intention to fulfill those promises. >> all right. we will continue, of course, and keep an eye on this developing story. p.j. crowelly, michael crowley and ann, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >>> now to breaking news out of beirut where some dramatic video is coming in. lebanon's news agency said a car bomb killed 14 people and injured over 200. that's a strong hold of the militant hezbollah group. dozens of people are trapped in cars and buildings. it's the second blast in over a month. >>> still ahead, new information from alabama where a couple of hours ago investigators recovered that black box recorder from that plane crash. >>> plus, more details emerging on the san diego murder and kidnapping case including what phone records show about the communication between 16-year-old hannah anderson and her abductor right
video of the president in martha's vineyard stopping to pick up lunch in oak bluffs. the president greeted the crowd there, as you saw, headed over to the restaurant and put his order in. meantime, we're learning more about the president's plans next week. the white house announcing the president will be taking a two-day bus tour through new york and pennsylvania. nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now from the vineyard. what more can you tell us about the stoppins the president's go to make? >> reporter: thomas, good afternoon. we understand he's going to make several stops next week, including to scranton, buffalo, syracuse, and binghamton. the white house hasn't confirmed those stops yet. we do know that he's going to be traveling to those places to talk about the economy. this is really a part of his broader economy tour. as you'll recall before he started vacation, he made a number of stops, five total, talking about the economy, mapping out policies he would like to see. he called for winding down fannie mae and fre
with his family in martha's vineyard. joining me live is kelly o'donnell. there's a lot on the plate when the reporters get the opportunity to ask the president questions. but is it true that the president is going to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what
-- again, from the white house press conference that they had on martha's vineyard, the united states strongly condemns the use of violence against protesters, sending the signal that this is not the way to react to people in protest in a democracy. >> right, thomas. the seeds, not only do they take a long time to take, but sometimes they don't take. then the process of cultivating them and allowing the seeds of democracy to grow require time and patience. it can be a very, very messy process. so this unraveling that we're seeing in egypt right now is some indication that's going on. the tricky part in terms of the u.s.-egypt relations -- and michael pointed this out, and it's important to underscore -- many of us look at this and see a military takeover no matter whether you're for or against the muslim brotherhood, the ways in which they were running the egypt democracy. whether you're for or against them, you have to think about the way they were disposed of what a coup. the united states can't say that out loud because the moment that they concede this is a coup, that means they d
. >> just got this new video in of president obama and his family taking a bike ride on martha's vineyard earlier today. good to see both of them wearing their helmets there. the family, first family scheduled to leave sunday. those are just a few of the things we thought you should know. time for the "news nation" gut check. it has long been the subject of wild conspiracy theories about ufos, extra terrestrials, alien autopsies, and lots more. newly released cia documents officially confirm a site in the nevada desert known as area 51 does actually exist. so exactly what does the government say was happening there? here's nbc's mara schiavocampo. >> reporter: conspiracy theory confirmed. the u.s. government has finally recognized the existence of area 51. according to recently declassified documents obtained by the national security archive at george washington university, the military air base is 125 miles northwest of las vegas. until now, it never officially existed, with all references to the area redacted from government files. >> they're no longer pretending the place doesn't exist
